ONTARIO – Vale High School senior Wyatt Currey has fond memories of attending the Malheur County Fair dressed in a white shirt, standing before the crowd and placing his sheep on show for the judges.

Currey did so well in his younger years, he has two showmanship awards at home.

Currey has now transformed those memories and his hope others will receive the same joy had had into a benefit dinner for the fairgrounds.

Scheduled for Saturday, March 17, the money raised from a dinner and silent auction will help fund a replacement for the sheep show ring, destroyed by last winter’s snow.

The dinner will be held . . .
